On behalf of ICOMOS Germany and the Monument Conservation Authority in Hessen (Germany) we would like to draw your attention to the conference “We have to build a town, a whole town” – The Darmstadt Artists’ Colony on the Mathildenhöhe, which will be taking place in Darmstadt, Germany, in April 2016 and will be focussing on artists’ colonies in the late 19th/early 20th centuries.
The conference is intended to be interdisciplinary. We invite researchers and scholars within the disciplines of the history of architecture and the arts, the preservation of historic buildings and monuments, landscape gardening, architecture and history, etc.
The papers are scheduled for 30 minutes each. The main language of the conference will be German, however contributions in English are also welcome.
Abstracts of papers (max. 300 words) in German or in English will be accepted until the 18 September 2015 to Dr. Jennifer Verhoeven (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please include your name, institution, and a short biography.
The City of Science Darmstadt will bear the costs for travel and accommodation. Unfortunately we cannot pay any fees for speakers.
